A funny, frazzled couple - one Jewish, one Asian-American - careens from first date to old age in this new musical from the creators of the Off-Broadway hit, Striking 12.
Adapted from the two-character play An Infinite Ache by David Schulner, Long Story Short covers a romance and 50-year marriage in 90 minutes and 17 songs. This catchy, melodic pop-rock score illuminates the challenges and joys encountered in any long-term relationship.
The New York premiere of this touching and entertaining musical is Prospect Theater Company's fifth full production at 59E59.
